No I like the way you review now. But some people just don't write many reviews, but they are yet considered as good reviewers and should be able to raise in levels even though they don't make many reviews.
Thanks =). Yes, I agree with you on that. Most people get recognition as 'good reviewers' just people they have a high quantity of reviews, they aren't neccessarily anything good. Just because someone doesn't write a lot of reviews doesn't mean they aren't a good reviewer - if you ask me I'd rather have a few good reviews per day than lots of short and crappy ones. Yet some good reviewers don't get the recognition they deserve, just because they aren't on a top 100 stats list.
Well, I don't know. Some people should probably make more reviews, but also shorter once.
Hmm yes, but only if they are still good. I mean, I write long reviews so it would be hard for me to suddenly switch sometimes to short reviews. I stick to my style because changing it would just be hassle.
Just because someone raise in reviewing level, it would mostly be because of many reviews. But alot of reviewers are better than those with many reviews. So they should acctually have a higher level; even though they don't have as many reviews.
Ahh I get what you mean now, I just didn’t understand the “purchased” you put in there haha.
And well, I don't know why you care so much about responses. =P
I just see responses as a bonus, and I love getting them and encourage authors to leave responses.
I don't care about responses, hell I am the reviewer in the top 100 with the lowest RR, and I still don't go and review submissions because there is a good chance of a response. Others do that and have a much higher RR - if I did what they did, don't you think my RR would be much higher now? Lol :)
see my post in the Top Reviewer's list. MARCUS Said he wouldn't write long reviews because the authors don't read and respond to them so it would just be a waste of time, and I said that at the end of the day - yes I put thought into my reviews and yes some could see it as a waste of time if no-one responds, but at least I know I did my best anyway.
Like you, I see a response as a bonus. I pretty much give up on responses now, I because when I first started reviewing and didn't get many responses, I'd get disappointed. So I don't care about them so much now.
But I leave my reviews after where I think a review is needed. Because I got something I want to say about the movie/game; not because I think I will get a respons.
Me too. You could think that I try and get responses because I usually review stuff in the flash portal, well that's not the reason. When I first started reviewing I went through the categories of flash Such as "noir" and tried to review all the flash in that category. Well I did most of that, and reviewing what's new in the flash portal is just easier because now I don't have to hunt around as much. Plus it's more rewarding, I love leaving good suggestions for an author in a review for a new flash; they sometimes like your suggestions and use them in the next version, it's just really nice to know that you have helped.
